3 BEST POOL RESORTS IN PHUKET
Phuket- one of the most favorite in Thailand- known for having a lot of nice beaches and beautiful sandy land. What is better than lazing in a swimming pool in a tropical paradise like Phuket? A calmer, cleaner and safer alternative to taking a dip in the sea, you can maybe swim a length or two if you’re feeling energetic, take a seat at a swim-up bar if you’re feeling thirsty or just float around in the water if you want to relax and cool off from an intensive sunbathing session. Younger members of the family will always have fun playing in the pool and the deeper ones are also great training grounds if you are learning to scuba dive. . Let’s read and enjoy your holiday in one of them!
1. Le Méridien Phuket Beach Resort
Despite looking like one giant pool, Le Méridien Phuket Beach Resort actually has two, each with a distinct atmosphere to it. The larger of the two forms a lagoon around the breakfast buffet restaurant. It is 60m long, 90m wide and very deep in parts, so it is not that unusual to see trainee divers exploring the area under the restaurant. Not far away is a shallower free-form pool which, with its two Jacuzzi sections, is ideal for parents and children. This seamlessly blends into the 26.5m lap pool, which is also pretty deep. Don’t worry about safety, though – the lifeguards on staff are all trained to the Australian gold standard.

2. Angsana Laguna Phuket
If you’re planning to swim ‘a couple of lengths’ of the Angsana Laguna Phuket swimming pool, you might need to cancel any plans you had for the afternoon first. At 323m across, it could take you a while! The only reason it doesn’t rank higher on our list of the 5 Biggest Hotel Pools in Phuket is because its freeform design consists of three large bodies of water with connecting channels, mirroring the lagoon the hotel is situated amongst. There is even a slight current in places, allowing you to effortlessly drift from one pool to the next. Other features include an artificial beach, water polo nets, shallower areas for the kids and a couple of poolside dining options.

3. Duangjit Resort & Spa
Of the three pools at the Duangjit Resort & Spa in Patong, the first two are not especially impressive. The third, however, is so big that it has an island in the middle. Over 100m long and about 60m across at its widest point, it has a poolside bar which also serves snacks and is ringed with sun loungers and umbrellas. It is not just set in the hotel’s 36 acres of lovingly landscaped gardens – the large island is an integral part of it, playing host to a natural garden.
